Fundraiser benefiting kids with Leukemia

Tis the Season for Giving and do we have a great cause!  Audrey Smith from Mrs. Balicki’s fifth-grade class is running a fundraiser benefiting kids with Leukemia at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago!

The fundraiser starts Monday December 2nd and runs through Friday December 6th.  There are collection jugs in the Irving office, one representing each class.  Is it a competition you ask?  Yes, it is!  By the end of the week we will see which class raises the most money for childhood leukemia!  A special prize will be donated to the wining class from the Circle of Friends Foundation at Lurie Childrens!  So have your kids bring in all those loose coins laying around your house, and lets see which class can raise the most money for leukemia!

And parents, you can get involved too!  Checks will also be accepted and can be made out to “Lurie Childrens Foundation”.  There is a form available for tax purposes if needed.  Per Audrey’s request, half of the money collected will go to the Child Life Department and used directly for the hospitalized kids, and the other half will be donated to cancer research.

Thank-you in advance from Audrey and her “team” and thank-you from the Lurie Children’s Circle of Friends Foundation!
